Vision Inspection for quality assurance you can count on
Laetus offers a diverse range of possible applications for visual inspection, in order to check the quality, intactness and completeness of products within the packaging line. A consistently high level of product quality protects consumers and keeps the risk of recalls to a minimum. As such, users avoid additional work, extra costs and their image being damaged. Our powerful inspection systems swiftly and reliably detect defective or damaged products, which can then be automatically sorted. Furthermore, valuable data can be gathered, which enables existing processes to be evaluated and optimised.
Here are just some of the solutions offered by Laetus:
- Presence monitoring for completeness of all packaging contents, ampoule colour ring identification or fill level control of bottles and dispensers with INSPECT
- Blister control for damage, contamination or repeated filling with POLYPHEM
In addition to this, Laetus offers a wide range of applications for product identification. ARGUS, for example, enables important safety inspections such as label inspection and checking of packaging printing.

- Inspection of the print quality of codes and design features
- Print inspection of plain text, independent of background design

Along with our customers, we create tailored solutions from our extensive range for all process-specific requirements.
Seamless tracking with Track & Trace
Laetus has been a Track & Trace specialist for over 40 years and offers a wide range of solutions to serialise and aggregate packaging. The traceability of goods throughout the entire packaging and supply chain provides a high degree of product safety and increases the level of trust among consumers in the long term. Marking and verification of products means that defective batches can be detected at any time and withdrawn from the production line.
This is particularly important in industries with costly or sensitive products such as pharmaceuticals, in which the risk of counterfeits is minimised, as unlicensed or stolen goods are not able to make their way onto the legal supply chain. New legal specifications such as the Russian crypto-code or pharmaceutical regulations on the traceability of pharmaceuticals such as the EU Falsified Medicines Directive EU FMD are fulfilled without any problems. In order to prevent medication being counterfeited, UV codes can also be used during the serialisation process, which are only visible to our camera and lighting systems.
Laetus offers users all the components required for successful Track & Trace from a single source. Thanks to their modular structure, they can be simply adjusted to the customer-specific production environment as well as their requirements in terms of tracking and traceability. Connection to the PLC enables comprehensive monitoring and evaluation of process sequences. As such, Laetus ensures maximum safety and Overall Equipment Effectiveness.
